Can’t leave the office for our meeting? Not a problem!

We all know the benefits of attending live meetings, participating with the audience and networking with our colleagues. Sometimes, we aren’t able to leave our offices but still would enjoy the educational opportunities that ARMA Chicago provides. We have listened! 

ARMA Chicago now offers two ways to attend monthly chapter meetings. In addition to our fantastic monthly speaker presentations and networking lunches, ARMA Chicago offers ability to stream presentation content from the comfort of an office, a hotel room, a couch or anywhere with an internet connection. Using CitrixGoToMeetings™, ARMA members will pay just $10 to watch and listen to monthly chapter presentations in real time (non-members pay $20). Online attendees can even ask questions of the speaker. In fact, ARMA Chicago is the first chapter in all of ARMA International to offer this meeting delivery method.

Frequently Asked Questions

What prompted ARMA Chicago to offer streaming meetings?

For years, some of our valued members have shared frustrations about wanting to attend chapter meetings, but being unable to leave the office. In order to ensure our chapter constituency has the highest level of access to meeting content, the Board of Directors unanimously voted to invest in this type of project. Although you will not have the same experience as a live audience, you will be able to “attend” the presentation, go through the educational content and even ask questions.

Will the meetings be “Recorded” or “On Demand?”

No. Those who choose to pay to attend the meetings online will not have the option to view the videos on demand. Content presented in the online meetings will be in real-time, and not recorded.

What if my computer does not behave?

When you sign up for the online meeting, the chapter administrator will provide a link to the webinar. During the sign-up process for the webinar, GoToMeetings™ will provide a list of standard system operating requirements. Please ensure your computer meets those standard system operating requirements before attempting to view the webinar. ARMA Chicago is unfortunately not able to remote troubleshoot or fix any chapter member or guest computer systems. Individual concerns can be directed to the Board of Directors at

Will the online format be available for all meetings?

With the exception of the winter and end-of-year banquets and the spring seminar, it is our hope all meetings will be available in the in-person and online format. Unless unforeseen circumstances arise, we anticipate offering the online option for all regular chapter meetings beginning November 11, 2014.

Can I register at the last minute?

To ensure each registered online chapter member receives proper links and login credentials, the deadline for registration for the online format is 5PM on the Friday prior to the chapter meeting.

My schedule suddenly changed! Can I switch from an in-person registration to an online registration?

Once a reservation has been made for a particular format (in-person or online), you cannot switch between format. We appreciate your help and understanding with this policy.

Can I ask questions of the speaker?

Absolutely! Simply type your question in the GoToMeetings chat window and the moderator will ask your question at the end of the presentation.
